Here is Helena Deland – Pale (download). The song released with Mp3 streaming [320kbps]. The new track is the latest record from the alternative music act.
“Pale” follows on from last month’s “Truth Nugget” single, and is accompanied by a visualiser directed by Yoon Rachel Nam.
Spending this much time
In my naked body’s
Not making it familiar to me
Trying to get used to it,
I read what’s on me
See-through blue’s the colour
True love leaves in tiny
Marks, gone so soon
Quiet stars in mid-afternoon,
“It doesn’t make me feel young”
I say “It’s something more motherly”
I’ll leave in his arms if it’s not I who has to carry
When the night rolls in
a tongue that holds me softly
I’ll melt into sleep
and then am told a different story
Deland says of her latest release, “”Pale” is about the little space left to the actual self in romantic relationships where idealisation comes into play.” She adds of the video, “The stream in the visualiser represents the question of control when control is ultimately impossible.”
Deland has announced a livestream performance on Bandcamp to celebrate the release of her debut album. Deland’s set will take place on 19 October at 6pm EST / 11pm BST. Tickets can be bought from Deland’s Bandcamp.
Someone New will also include earlier singles “Someone New” and “Lylz”.
She says of her debut LP, “Someone New is about paradoxically feeling sick of and unfamiliar with myself. I realised that I associated primarily with what others (real or imagined) projected onto me, and acted in ways to avoid disappointing this projection or imagined expectation. The quest to please and conform distracted me from who I already was and I laboured to comply to a normative set of expectations. I noticed my troubled relationship with my body, which escaped my control and gave others so much information it seemed to withhold from me. I sought comfort in romantic relationships, which validated me and where I was free to at least momentarily reinvent myself for the other’s sake.”
